September 2021 Round Up

In September, I read 21 books, and most of those were again Australian authors, with two quiz books and 19 review books. To date on the day of writing this, I have read 217 books, and September saw me reach 215 books for 2021. I completed my Dymocks Reading Challenge, leaving only my QBD Challenge and AWW Challenge – the latter of which is ongoing and sadly, the team have decided to wrap it up this year as we couldn’t find a new admin to oversee everything. We’ll continue it informally in the Facebook group, but we won’t be formally counting reviews, writing round ups and so forth. The only other challenge that is ongoing is the Aussie Author Challenge, which I have formally completed but am adding to nonetheless until the end of the year, and hope to write an end of year post for that as well as my formal wrap up earlier this year.

Totals so far:

Modern Mrs Darcy – 14/14

Australian Authors Challenge – 24/24 (87)

AWW2021 – 125/150

Dymocks Reading Challenge – 26/26

QBD Reading Challenge – 25/26

Overall goal – 217/170
